Why are prints so important? | Ripon CA Family Photos
We are the MOST photographed generation of all time, yet there will be no pictures for our future generations to see.
Why? Because we rarely print these images that we take each and every day. I know you might be asking, why would I want to print these daily snap shots? Let me tell you…
What would you do if your grandparent handed you one of these and said, here are my photos. Enjoy!
You’d start wondering how in the world you are going to get them off that disk! Right?! You might even wonder, why did my grandparent not print those files instead of giving me this floppy disk that is no longer able to be used?
Now go back within the last 8 years or so… remember these?
Now let’s look at today… “The Cloud”
What if your phone breaks or hard drive fails? Have you thought through all of this?
Digital files can be so easily lost or forgotten. So often I hear these words
“I’m devastated, my computer died and I lost all of my images” or my phone or external hard drive …
Now, look at this… A print.
Do you know the average lifetime of a print is at least 100 years. Pretty amazing isn’t it!?
Why am I posting about all of this? To get you thinking. Do you still have those digital images from your last portrait session sitting on your computer or a cd in your drawer or, gasp, maybe you never even downloaded them!
Our lives are so busy that we don’t take the time to sit down and sift through the images and figure out how to display them or put them in an album.
For your every day images I encourage you to get a slip in album or even a shoe box and start printing off your images. There are so many neat online printing companies. Some even give you prints for free!
For your family portraits, I encourage you to hire a photographer that assists you with choosing images to display on your walls or in albums.
I promise you, your generations will be so thankful to have those images.
Do you want to hand your generation this?
I’ll let you decide… Is investing in your family’s history and memories worth it?
Open a photo album, display your kids photos on your walls and you will see how your kids/family react to seeing them… you will soon find out if it is worth it or not.
